The ruling Telangana Rashtra

Samithi and opposition Congress-led 'People's Front' Friday

expressed confidence that they would win the Telangana

Assembly polls.

There is a "very, very positive" mood among voters

towards the party, caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar

Rao (KCR) told reporters at his native village Chintamadaka

where he cast his vote in the Assembly polls.

"...pro-incumbency government is again coming back

with a huge majority without any doubt," KCR said.

The Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) is going it alone

in the polls and so is the BJP.

Polling concluded Friday in the 119 Assembly segments

in the state.

State congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy said the

'People's Front' , comprising the Congress, TDP, CPI and

Telangana Jana Samiti, would get over 80 seats in the

119-member House.

Reddy, who spoke before the polling concluded, said

the number could go up if the voting percentage was higher.

BJP spokesperson Krishna Saagar Rao alleged that KCR

violated the Model Code of Conduct by addressing media in the

premises of a polling booth and indulging in promotion of his

party (claiming majority).

The BJP has complained to the Election Commission on

the alleged violation and sought KCR's disqualification as a

candidate.

BJP would pursue the matter further and go to court if

necessary, he said.

"During campaigning BJP sincerely explained its

policies to the people," he said.

Counting of votes would be taken up on December 11.

Assembly elections in Telangana were originally

scheduled to be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha polls

next year.

However, the Assembly was dissolved prematurely on

September six following a recommendation made by the TRS

government.
